Two US B-52 Bombers Train with Japan Air Forces Over East China Sea

Two B-52H Stratofortress bombers with the US Air Force recently flew over the East China Sea for an "integration training" mission with the US Navy and the Japan Air Self Defense Force (Koku Jieitai).

A statement released by the US Pacific Air Force (PACAF) last week indicates that the two B-52 bombers departed from the US Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, and that they trained with F-15C Eagles assigned to the Kadena Air Base in Japan. The mission took place March 20. Additional details regarding the operation were not provided by the service.

Training missions and patrols of the contested waters are not unheard of, having become a regular exercise by American forces. The US' use of bombers in the region has been going on for more than 10 years as part of its Continuous Bomber Presence, a mission Washington says is "in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific."
